Workshop on conducting and managing POSH complaints
ou are aware very well the cost of not managing well a Prevention of Sexual Harassment at a workplace that's too beyond what a law asks. Recently, a media house went into such controversy about an incident of a CEO and now, he had to resign, their funding has been stopped, HR team has been removed and now they are doing cost cutting. It may look just an Act but it has severe business impact. You are well aware about current #MeToo campaign. The impact is huge and irreversible. We know the impact of a poorly handled POSH inquiry in Noida and how a VP committed suicide, the organisation reputation damage and also the legal action on IC for abetment to suicide.
It is a must to build capacity of the IC members and HR in conducting inquiries and handling a POSH complaint in an efficient and effective manner.
